Waterproofing inside a wet wooden hull
I've recently purchased a 'fixer upper' a 28ft yacht, im not entirely sure what it is, i'll post pics and maybe someone can say.
However my first job is to waterproof the hull, currently it is completely empty and it taking on water, about an inch per day. What I want to do is paint the entire inside of the hull with something to make it waterproof, however.. I cant take the boat out of the water, so the wood I will be painting/waterproofing will be a little damp.
I'm wondering if tar would be an option or if there is an epoxy that could dry and seal in these conditions.
Any help would be great, thanks
